Amari'i Bell: Mansfield sign Birmingham defender on loan

Mansfield Town have signed Birmingham City left-back Amari'i Bell on loan until January.

The 20-year-old spent time on loan at Nuneaton Town and Kidderminster Harriers last season and has only made one appearance so far for Blues.

Bell, who signed a new contract last month, told the Mansfield website: "I can't wait to get started.

"I like to have the ball and pass it, but if the gaffer plays a different way then I can easily adapt to that."

Mansfield's capture of Bell ends Kidderminster Harriers boss Gary Whild's hopes of getting him back on loan.

Harriers lost just once in the 10 games he played in during the final two months of last season while at Aggborough.

Bell was just as successful in his time at Liberty Way, ending up on the losing side just three times in 19 games for early season table toppers Nuneaton.
